Following the success of 2019’s Resident Evil 2, the following logical step could be for Capcom to remake Resident Evil three: Nemesis utilizing the identical engine. Which will very effectively be a actuality, in keeping with widespread YouTube channel Spawn Wave. Apparently, sources have confirmed with the channel that the remake shouldn’t be solely in improvement, however that it is going to be coming in 2020. Spawn Wave has had each hits (he knew about Elden Ring earlier than it was introduced) and misses (Metroid Prime trilogy that by no means occurred), so take his rumor with a grain of salt, nevertheless, each VGC and Eurogamer have corroborated, saying that “quite a few sources” have confirmed to them that Resident Evil three Remake is occurring. Whereas this information is probably not stunning, the alleged turn-around time is quicker than some may anticipate when you think about Resident Evil 2 launched earlier this yr.
The unique Resident Evil three: Nemesis launched on the PlayStation in 1999, the yr after Resident Evil 2. When relating that to current day, it’s becoming that the remakes would launch only a yr aside.

The picture above options a big gap within the wall of the police station in Resident Evil 2, with the caption “clearly one thing or somebody doesn’t perceive the idea of doorways… What do YOU suppose occurred to the wall right here?” Since each video games occur across the identical time, it is sensible Nemesis may have been within the police station discovered within the second installment.
However that’s not all: After the announcement of Mission Resistance, a Resident Evil spin-off with a concentrate on asymmetrical multiplayer, Matt Walker, a Capcom producer needed to reassure followers concerning the path the sequence could be headed. He mentioned:
It’s completely legitimate that individuals need extra of that high quality core expertise provided in RE2 and RE7.
My take – we as an organization must proceed to department out and attempt to supply up new gameplay along with refining the experiences folks anticipate from us. If we simply proceed to supply up the identical factor again and again, folks will regularly lose curiosity with what we’re making.
Talking of Mission Resistance, quite a few gamers who participated in its beta noticed an occasion by which the Resident Evil three Save Room Theme music performs. Once more, that is no affirmation, nevertheless it at the least proves that Capcom has Nemesis on the thoughts.
If Capcom is engaged on Resident Evil three remake, the supposed turn-around time may not be so outlandish. We don’t know for sure when in 2020 they plan to launch it both, and if it’s a late 2020 sport, that provides the studio extra time to work on it. It’s completely doable they’re gearing as much as launch it on next-gen consoles subsequent vacation too. Sadly, these rumors don’t dive into these particulars so we’re left to aimlessly speculate.
For now, it’s good to take these rumors with a grain of salt since Capcom hasn’t formally confirmed something, however the proof retains mounting for a Resident Evil three: Nemesis remake.
